Why do people refuse to use any version control? I mean, what the hell, this is 2019! We're not programming by banging two rocks together anymore. We moved on. We are smarter than this.

Apparently copy/paste between crouton chroot and ChromeOS should be possible if I install the crouton Chrome extension and enable the "extension" target for the chroot but it's still not happy.

Ladies and gentlemen, witness the blistering speed of Thunderbolt3. thinking I would have been better off with dd over a DSL connection.

Hey, Denver, knock it off down there. The smoke from all that reefer is filling the sky up with clouds and causing some serious turbulence up here!

So long and thanks for all the fish, SF. Great conference and great people. I hope to come back in the future for more good times and chats with wicked smart people from all walks of life.

If the guy outside my hotel doesn't stop playing Careless Whisper soon I'm going to throw a chair out my hotel window and shut him up myself.

I have been using Aldiko but the interface is a little sluggish.

Reclaiming RSS

“Before Twitter, before algorithmic timelines filtered our reality for us, before surveillance capitalism, there was RSS: Really Simple Syndication … As we move away from the centralised web to the peer web, it’s time to rediscover, re-embrace, and reclaim RSS.”

Motorola finally got around to pushing an OTA update to 7.1.1 for the Motto G4. Hallelujah! Only took, what, two years!?

Put this on the list of "bugs fix but not really": bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.c

"The package is broken so we released another package that fixes this but fail to include it in our default install so you have to know to install it to fix the bug"

Now to go clean up those 25k messages in the .esmtp_queue/ directory...
